    gekko--
    I checked your profile and read back through some of your recent posts to "get to know you" a bit. (I'm "new" back on the BB's after an absence, and have never posted actively.) I wanted to understand where you're coming from with your song. I'm an old-fogey-lady in my mid-40's, and not too wild about rap music (I'm having to assume this is rap, since I'm not young enough to know for sure. [​IMG] )
    Reading the lyrics makes me realize that rap is just modern-day poetry (set to music, obviously), and so I have a greater appreciation for it now. And I am touched by the sincerity conveyed in what you have to say. You are obviously young and on-fire and speaking out about hypocrisy. I pray that God will use that fire to warm many souls. May God bless your ministry!

    ya call that music? nothing but wind in a microphone and a lot of sounds of someone scratching a record.

    Music has really degraded if that is music.

    its how i view the dying religion of christianity as it is today - how professing christians are giving true christianity a bad name. personally i dont see anything wrong with it.

    i wasn't trying for it to rhyme properly or to make it look good SFIC... its the content.

    i dont understand how some of you people (thank you terriloo for what you said!) have taken offense to this?

    terriloo put it correctly - its speaking out against hypocrisy.

    God bless,
    gek.

    Thanks for sharing gekko. Ignore those who only have a critical spirit. God is able to use all things to His glory, He does not reside in the narrow box of the legalist and hypocrites. You keep listening to the Lord and share as He leads you. Keep that heart for Him brother.

    Asinine. Completely asinine. Some of you people are cruel. Gekko wrote something, and while he did ask what you thought, instead of "might be considered harsh," or "I don't agree with your views," you tell him he wasted his time and you trash his education. Real love is demonstrated here. [​IMG]

    Maybe you should post some of your creative efforts on the board for everyone to ridicule. Maybe then you'll see. As for me, you've proven that your opinion on anything outside your box doesn't matter... at least to me. [​IMG]

    It should not surprise anyone the level that some will go to around here to ridicule someone.

    gekko, thanks for sharing, you are rather brave to post it on here.

    I think we tend to forget that not everyone on the BB is from the same walk of life or level of spiritual maturity. I would hate for a new Christian to happen upon the BB and post some questions and get lambasted for it. (this is in no way in reference to you gekko, just a general statement)

    Thanks for sharing gekko.

    Winston Churchill did it. So did Henri Matisse, Mark Twain and F. Scott Fitzgerald while writing his Last Tycoon. The philosopher René Descartes did, too—but only till noon. All these productive people worked in bed.

    Good work gekko. I am not a rap fan and there is but very little rap I do care about. I could only imagine how this song would sound if it were performed and thought it did merit a lot of good possibility for those who like rap.
    So you gonna try this out on a crowd?
    Let us know how it turns out if you do.

    Is it just me or does some hair on the chin make one an authority on what's right?

    Well, I'm not going to offer an opinion on the content of the poetry, but I will say for those who want to rant about it or for those who want to rant about the ranters....

    Gekko DID say....

    When you extend an open invitation on a public forum for critique of your work, expect anything and everything to be said.

    True, but its alot better than some other stuff out there, and I think Gekko's brave too, for posting his heart like he did. I wouldnt do it.

    Then again, if it makes Shiloh mad, there must be something worthwhile about it... [​IMG]

    A critique does not need to be unkind and uncharitable. Those who bear the name of Christ ought to do better.
